Abstract
A pilot study has been conducted to find out if and how the building process influences the indoor air or the perception of the indoor air.

This was carried out as a qualitative interview study with different people who had been involved in the building process. A tentative result of this interview study is that the degree to which the future tenants had been involved in the planning of the building was important for whether they regarded the building as healthy or not.

This method for studying the problem seems to be a good way of finding possible weak links in the building process that may later cause indoor air problems. (Less)
